It’s 2018 and it’s time for that new year, new me attitude to kick in. I don’t really tend to set any New Years’ resolutions, I just try to start January with a positive outlook to set me off steady for the year. One resolution I have this year is to keep up my monthly I’M SO INTO POST. Which I forgot to do last month, oops! I wish the weather knew how not to dampen my mood, January blues are here to stay.
One thing I have changed this year is what I put on my lips. I used to always wear matte lipstick and I never thought I would be converted to the shiny gloss I used to wear as a kid with my Britney blue eyeshadow. However, when I went to check out Fenty Beauty in Harvey Nichols, Manchester and I came across RiRi’s fave Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer and I’m now a gloss lover.
I never liked the look of gloss on my small lips before, but this shimmery, rose nude shade made me think twice. When I saw it gave my lips a perfect glow I instantly knew this had to go on my Christmas list so I could use it to brighten my dull January. The shade is universal, claiming to suit any shade of skin, which makes it such an amazing, versatile product!
Whilst we are on the gloss topic, I also bought my mum this Kiko 3D Hyrda Lipgloss in shade 03 – Pearly Apricot. I thought it was a simple on-the-go product to slip onto her bag and made a perfect extra Christmas present. It’s a gorgeous neutral colour and has just the right amount of shimmer; my mum loves it!
Now I’m fully convinced by the glossy lip! I’m fed up of matte lipstick drying up and cracking my lips, so I’m happy to wear lipgloss from now on or a bare, natural lip works for me too.
I hope this gave you a little inspiration for your 2018 makeup looks!
